Albert's Birthday

Illustrated by Leslie Tryon

In this charming addition to the timeless and beloved Albert the Duck books, Patsy Pig plans the perfect surprise party for Albert—but nearly forgets the most important detail of all.

In the midst of planning a grand surprise party for her best friend, Albert, Patsy Pig forgets the most important thing: to invite Albert!

She gave all of her friends special instructions so they could gather the prettiest party hats, the most beautiful cards, and the yummiest cake, but her guest of honor is not there to enjoy it.

Complete with Albert’s colorful photo album and many activity-filled pictures, Albert’s Birthday is a great read that “emphasizes good intent rather than perfection”— a valuable lesson for any young reader (Publishers Weekly).

Leslie Tryon is the author of the Albert books and several others for young readers. She is also the illustrator of Alma Flor Ada's Dear Peter Rabbit and With Love, Little Red Hen. She lives in Carmel Valley, California.
